Haters are gonna spread hate

If there is one thing that pisses me off, it has to be when someone signs up on the Survivalist Boards Forum, then threatens to sue me when they receive a newsletter.

1 – when you register at the forum there is an option to opt out of the newsletter.

2 – unsubscribe information is included in EVERY newsletter. Can you read that? In “every” newsletter. Not some of the newsletters, not in every other newsletter, unsubscribe information is included in “every” newsletter.

Do not get pissed off at me because you can not read. What the hell people, take time to manage the accounts you create on websites. If you created an account, then take responsibility for your actions.

If you sign up on a forum, then complain that you received a newsletter, you are nothing more then a deadbeat user – kinda like a dead beat parent who does not want to take responsibility for the children you create.

The people that complain about getting a newsletter are probably the same people who blame everyone else for their problems.

Panic buying before a disaster

Panic BuyingWhen the public has and kind of advanced warning of a disaster – such as a hurricane or pandemic disease – people go into a panic buying mode. Keep this one thing in mind – if you do not have it before the panic buying kicks in, you will not be able to get it.

These images were taken as Hurricane Ike was approaching the Texas coast in September of 2008. The list of items that disappears off the shelf first is rather short, but still long. It includes canned foods, bottled water, camp stoves and camp stove fuel, bread, flashlights, and other odd and end items.

Barricaded store fronts during a disaster

When some type of disaster occurs, the owners of a store will take measures to protect their business and their property. A lot of places like wal-mart will stack bales of compressed cardboard in front of the doors.

These blocks of compressed cardboard act as a barricade to help stop people from driving cars or trucks through the front doors. Most of the time the front doors of these large stores will be made of glass – which offer little to no protection from a car or truck. During the Rodney King riots, some store owners also used these blocks of cardboard as bullet stops. Its kinda difficult for a bullet to penetrate 3 – 4 feet of compressed cardboard. The store owners were able to band together behind these blocks of cardboard, and stop the crowds of looters from destroying their stores .

This video was filmed just before Hurricane Ike made landfall in Galveston, Texas.
